Trail cover

Wife got me a Bestop Trail cover for my YJ for Christmas this year and I finally got to use it last night when some storms moved into the area. Took me just a few moments to install with her help. It is no problem installing it alone but I did have her help. Although there is a puddle of water on top it is not sagging or pulling up from the ends. Since I go door and topless all summer long having this trail top with me is so nice. It comes with its own bag and will fit nicely between the back seat and tailgate. Beats the hell out of a wet seat I use to deal with before.
I'll post a picture of it later when I get to work.


My Jeep build. :)

I use mine all the time an love it! You will want to fashion something to create a peak in the center to keep the rain from pooling up. I've come out in the morning to find the cover nearly touching the seat because it was full of rain water, but the cover still didn't leak.

I sewed one up using a regular tarp (my 2nd actually, 1st lasted 8-10 yrs), add some grommets to hold bungees, and I'm done for $25. I made it with 'elephant ear' doors so they cover the full door opening. Tarp material sews like it's not there, any machine will work. I found brown tarp somewhere, so it doesn't look 'tarp blue' when in use.

This is a great idea. My current Rugged Ridge trail cover is on its third year and starting to leak and show signs of wear. I use mine all summer long as well. I keep my safari top on and that helps keep the water from pooling on it.
